|Treatment at the Farabaugh Chiropractic Office
bases treatment on an evidence-based approach incorporating "best
practices" into our recommendations. Best practices include treatment
based on three important concepts: (1) the best available scientific
evidence, (2) clinical decision-making, and (3) patient values.
Incorporating a best practice model into daily practice insures that
our patients are treated in not only a scientific manner, but in a
trustworthy manner. Our patients, and the physicians who refer to
our office, can rest assured that if we feel we can assist in the
advancement of a patient's health in a manner consistent with the
scientific literature, we do. But if a referral is necessary for either
further diagnostic tests, or second opinion evaluations, we do not
General treatment guidelines: Generally, when a patient
is accepted for care, initial treatment is scheduled for two weeks
(obviously case-dependant). At that point we re-evaluate and determine
the success or failure of treatment. If the patient is not progressing
as well as expected, we either switch treatment approaches and treat
for another two weeks, or refer the patient for further diagnostic
tests or to another physician for evaluation.
If the patient has progress after two weeks, we schedule them for
another two weeks, then re-evaluate again. Eventually the patient
either recovers and is released/discharged from care, or withdrawn
from care to evaluate the stability of their residual condition.
Most patients enter our office, are treated and released. If you are
struggling with a difficult case, or you feel that spinal manipulation
would be a favored treatment option for your patient, you may want
to consider a referral to the Farabaugh Chiropractic Office.
Spinal manipulation works best for low back pain, leg pain, herniated
discs, arthritis, mechanical back pain, SI joint dysfunction, neck
and arm pain, acceleration/deceleration injury, and headaches.
